Today is a perfect illustration of one of the seemingly odd (to some people) thing about me. I love to walk in the rain. Now I am not talking a storm but a nice gentle rain. Just enough rain to keep most people inside so I feel like I have the entire neighborhood/park or where ever I might be walking to myself.
Secondly I have a darling dog named Luna. This comes as no surprise to anyone who reads my blog regularly. When you have a dog, especially a big dog, those walks are more frequent and believe me she doesn't care if it is raining, snowing or anything else except extreme heat. Then she would prefer to stay inside with the AC on. I have actually done a meme for her at the request of someone. You can go here to read it if you didn't read it before or wouldlike to know more about her.
Thirdly, I find it difficult to talk about myself. I, as most people, don't find myself all that interesting.
Fourthly, since becoming more sensitive to the sun and my arthritis gives me fits more often I have begun to paint in watercolors. This is a way I can enjoy my garden while sitting in the shade and not exerting so much. At this point I must thank my Dearly Beloved who has started taking an interest in the garden since he retired. He does a lot of the heavy work around here now. He also says I should tell you that I like to create gardens but I don't like to weed. Which brings me to the fifth thing about me. It is true that I haven't totally embraced weeding. While Carol can make something as mundane as weeding sound like the thing to be doing my mind just can't wrap itself around that chore. I probably won't ever have the veggie garden of my dreams because my DB would have to do a lot of work to get it ready and alas, I hate to weed.
Sixth, I am not at all techy. I have switched my Blogger account over to the new uploading system for photos and have made a big mistake of putting my photos and post for my other blog, Artsy Endeavors, on this, my garden blog. It is very frustrating. I find anything other than typing or better yet reading on the computer frustrating.
Sixthly, I am a big Colts Fan. Now, I am not just a recent Colts fan but a long time, before the Manning dynasty, Colts fan. Actually football is my favorite sport to watch. I guess it is because in my family there were a lot of football fans and players. While I can watch some golf or volleyball because I have played some and I have watched some baseball and basketball because my children played I would much rather just park myself on the sofa with a beer and a bowl of popcorn and let the games play on. Of course when the Colts play the Steelers it is such fun because my Sister is a big time long time Steeler fan. What's the matter with her?? tee hee...
Lastly, I am something of a Bibliophile. Our house makes a great deposit for all the books I have. The only bad thing is our house is small and it is already stuffed with books. I have a cabinet full of garden books that I read and reread. We have several bookcases and tables full of books. Birding, travel guides, reference books about nature. I have made myself learn to get rid of books that I don't intend to read a second time or that just collect dust for what ever reason.
So, my dear readers this is it. All I can think of right now. I hope the sun is shining on you even if the rain comes down. Happy weekend.
P.S. I can't count either.
